BOCA RATON, Fla. - July 31, 2013 - DoubleTree by Hilton,  AWH Partners, LLC and The Lane Organization, LLC today announced the launch of a dramatic renovation of the Boca Raton Bridge Hotel, a waterfront hotel in Boca Raton, Fla, scheduled for completion in late 2013. The hotel's transformation will be centered upon a bold redesign and new name that celebrates its distinctive waterside location - Waterstone Resort & Marina - a DoubleTree by Hilton. The property will continue to be managed by Spire Hospitality.

"The Waterstone Resort & Marina - a DoubleTree by Hilton will offer the perfect convergence of forward design, intuitive hospitality and casual waterfront comfort," said Matthew Lane, principal, The Lane Organization, LLC. "The strength of the DoubleTree by Hilton name and reputation, combined with the power of Hilton Worldwide's global channels, bring tremendous value to this resort."

Gensler, a global design and architectural firm, has been commissioned for the reinvention, which will include a stunning lobby that evokes a heightened sense of arrival, and upgrades throughout guestrooms and public spaces to reflect the property's signature waterside locale. Unveiling a 270-foot wraparound seawall and dock dubbed the "waterfront promenade," Waterstone Resort & Marina - a DoubleTree by Hilton offers the only "dock to dine" option in Boca Raton with the opportunity to arrive by boat and dine on the water at the resort's outdoor restaurant. The new promenade will flank the property's Lake Boca perimeter while providing direct access to the Atlantic Ocean.

Waterstone Resort & Marina - a DoubleTree by Hilton is ideally located on the Intracoastal Waterway among pristine beaches, championship golf courses, world-class dining, upscale shopping at the Boca Raton Town Center and village-style shopping in downtown Boca Raton. Located one block from the beach, the hotel will unveil a new outdoor pool area, expansive meeting and event space, and on-site watersports and bicycle rentals. All of the hotel's 128 guest rooms and 11 suites offer private balconies with panoramic waterfront views.

"With its boutique-style appeal and proximity to key leisure destinations in Boca Raton, this hotel is ideally-suited to join the DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio," says John Greenleaf, global head - DoubleTree by Hilton. "The Waterstone Resort & Marina - a DoubleTree by Hilton is a perfect testament to the unique, upscale hotels offered across our collection."

Following the renovation, guests will enjoy DoubleTree by Hilton brand exclusives, including the welcome of a warm chocolate chip cookie presented to each guest upon arrival, the Wake Up DoubleTree BreakfastTM, gourmet in-room tea and coffee offerings from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, a refreshing array of CITRON body care products by Crabtree & Evelyn and an industry-recognized service culture which is built around the idea of CARE (Create a Rewarding Experience) for guests, team members and the community. Guests can earn and redeem points through the Hilton HHonors guest loyalty program. Gold and Diamond level members will receive complimentary breakfast and high speed Internet access during their stay.
